Any prosecutor that fails, or refuses, to fully disclose all Brady/Giglio material (exculpatory and impeachment evidence including, but not limited to: records of police misconduct; public complaints; and, use-of-force reports) is subject to Rules of Professional Conduct [R.P.C.] 3.8(g): Special Responsibilities of the Prosecutor. Violation of R.P.C. 3.8(g) may included an individual attorney, while acting in the capacity of prosecutor, being sanctioned up to and including disbarment. The obligations upon the prosecutor are both retroactive and perpetual.
The Oregon Public Records Law, first enacted in 1973, is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of government bodies at all levels. The ORS 192.410(4)(a) says that a public record includes any writing that contains information that relates to the conduct of the public's business, is prepared, owned, used or maintained by a public body regardless of physical form or characteristics. If a record (a) does not relate to the conduct of the public's business and (b) is contained on a privately owned computer", then it is not a public record as defined in the law.
Anyone can request public records and a statement of purpose is not required. There are no restrictions on the use of records nor is there a specified time limit for responses.
